Aragon seeks to shore up its healthcare system over the next four years. The regional government has put out to tender the performance of therapeutic procedures throughout the autonomous community for $14.2 million (€11.9 million), according to the region’s contractor profile.
The contract, published this Thursday, March 11th, aims to select the companies in charge of performing external radiotherapy therapies and dermatology procedures over the next four years. The first lot, for external radiotherapy, includes therapies with conventional electron accelerators, treatments with special equipment, body irradiation, and proton therapy. The second lot, which refers to dermatology procedures, includes laser treatments and surgical procedures.

The services performed in private centers, even if the users belong to the Aragon Health System, will follow nine guidelines
The first is an outpatient consultation for assessment and treatment planning, as well as explorations and complementary procedures. This will be followed by a pre-anesthesia consultation and the patient’s authorization for the procedure to be performed.
The patient will then be admitted to the health center, the procedure will be prepared and the therapeutic procedure will be performed. After the stay in the center, the bidder will be responsible for possible complications of the procedure and their costs, if any, and post-treatment control consultations.
The objectives of the external radiotherapy therapeutic procedure are to unify the criteria for action and treatment protocols, guaranteeing homogeneous care, unifying minority activities and making it possible to manage a single waiting list.
The maximum prices of the services vary from $1,000 (€850) to $41,700 (€35,000)
The maximum prices of the services already established vary from $1,000 (€850) to ten treatment sessions of complexity type I radiotherapy with conventional electron accelerators to $8,900 (€7,500) for brain radiosurgery. The price of radiotherapy with special equipment ranges from $8,900 (€7,500) for brain tumors to $14,300 (€12,000) for lung or liver tumors. The stipulated prices performed with special equipment may be increased by up to 15% of the agreed price, together with the corresponding clinical and economic justification.
The prices for proton therapy range from $34,500 (€29,000) for complete adult treatment to $41,700 (€35,000) for complete pediatric treatment. Finally, in the field of dermatology procedures, laser prices range from $1,800 (€1,500) to $5,660 (€4,750), while surgical procedures have a maximum stipulated price of $1,578 (€1,325).
